Country Highlights

Turkmenistan & its Energy Sector

Energy exports, dominated by natural gas, have underpinned Turkmenistan’s economy for decades.  Proven gas reserves of over 600 trillion cubic feet make Turkmenistan the world’s 4th largest holder. Production peaked at 80 bcm but declined to 50 bcm in recent years.

Efforts to enhance coordination and synergies in the development of all energy sources reflect Turkmenistan’s commitment to maximizing the potential of its energy sector. By prioritizing transparency in statistics and information-sharing both domestically within government institutions and with international partners, Turkmenistan aims to create a conducive environment for sustainable growth and collaboration in the energy industry. These initiatives not only strengthen Turkmenistan’s position as a reliable energy supplier but also pave the way for increased efficiency, innovation, and competitiveness in its energy sector.

Pipeline gas exports from Turkmenistan go primarily to China via the Central Asia-China Pipeline. However, output falls and Chinese demand fluctuations have reduced revenues. The Trans-Caspian Pipeline project could boost Europe-bound exports but faces geopolitical hurdles from Russia. A Trans-Afghan Pipeline remains a distant prospect.

Oil production in Turkmenistan meets domestic needs while allowing some exports. However— fields are mature and output is gradually falling without new discoveries. Revenues fund infrastructure and social development but wealth distribution is uneven. Depletion also looms without a sovereign wealth fund or economic diversification.

Energy will remain the economic backbone. But sustainable growth hinges on sector reforms, diversification and hedging reliance on single export routes and customers.

While natural gas will remain a pillar of the economy for decades some issues like- maturing fields, volatile demand and lack of export diversification endanger long-term sustainability. Increasing recovery rates from ageing fields through advanced technologies involves attracting significant investment.

Developing new gas provinces like – Dostluk could boost reserves but requires huge capital and expertise. A lack of transparency in sector governance and contracts undermines confidence, compounding challenges.

Bold reforms are needed to open up exploration to private partners, adopt global standards, and establish a sovereign wealth fund to insulate the economy from commodity price swings and support economic transition.
